'Palutena's Guidance' is a feature in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS that allows secret conversations to be held, much in the same vain as Snake's Codec Conversations in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Palutena advises Pit about the opponent he's up against, and these conversations can only be activated on her stage (Palutena's Temple), and only once per match. They're quite intriguing (for the most part), as we get to hear the thoughts and opinions of each SSB4 fighter from the cast of Kid Icarus, as well as learn more about Pit as a character through his somewhat entertaining dialogue.

Unfortunately, the developers of the game didn't include these secret conversations for any of the new DLC arrivals. Each DLC fighter brings on the same generic conversation, which goes as follows:

Pit: Who is THAT?

Palutena: I have no data on this fighter.

Pit: I can't believe it!

Viridi: It must be an intruder from another dimension!

Pit: Whoever it is, the goal remains the same: to fight and win!

With that said, Zelda Universe have enacted its own take of the secret conversations on the latest DLC newcomers - Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta - through its YouTube channel. In this writer's opinion, the voice acting is quite superb, and it certainly doesn't feel like a fan dub. It should also be mentioned that ZeldaUniverseTV also uploaded a video back in September for the first wave of DLC entrants, that being Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, and Ryu.

Have a watch of both videos below and let us know your thoughts. Are you impressed, and do you think these are accurate representations of each character?
